Some important information that you should take into consideration:
1. We will be constantly monitoring the pandemic situation. If it worsens, we will switch the conference to “full online” mode. We can confirm that SUC will not be held as a “hybrid conference”, and therefore we cannot accept “online only” applications. If the conference will take place as an online one, the registration fee will be reduced to €20.
2. We cannot provide any help regarding the travel restrictions between your country and Hungary. You should find all regulations at governmental/embassy websites and other official sources, and you are responsible for planning your travel to Hungary. Apart from that, we are more than happy to help with other issues (travel within Hungary, scheduling etc.), as always.
Publication: All papers will be considered for publication in the peer-reviewed journal on Classics entitled Sapiens ubique civis, published in cooperation with the ELTE Eötvös József Collegium.
Getting here: Szeged, the largest city of Southern Hungary, can be easily reached by rail from Budapest and the Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport. Those who prefer travelling by car can choose the European route E75, and then should take the Hungarian M5 motorway, a section of E75, passing by the city.
For general inquiries about the conference, please contact Dr Gergő Gellérfi: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to your participation in this conference.
